A method for the analysiso f vibration of shallow shellsi s presented. The method is based upon the concept of iso-amplitude contour lines on the vibrating surface of the shell. The problem of transient axisymmetric vibrations of shallow elliptical dome is investigated. It is shown that in the limiting case, when the elliptical dome reduces to the spherical dome, Reissner’s well-known result is obtained.
